Architectural Record — “U.S. Pavilion Organizers Announce Exhibitors and Associate Curator for the 2018 Venice Biennale”

September 12, 2017

“The organizers of the U.S. Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale have selected a group of seven architects, designers, and landscape architects to create work for the exhibition Dimensions of Citizenship at the 16th edition of the international exposition.

Exhibitors will include artists Amanda Williams & Andres L. Hernandez of Chicago; Cambridge, Massachusetts-based firm Design Earth; Diller Scofidio + Renfro and SCAPE, both based in New York, Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman of San Diego, California; New Haven, Connecticut-based Keller Easterling; and Chicago’s Studio Gang.

Running from May 26 to November 25, 2018, Dimensions of Citizenship will grapple with the idea of belonging and the meaning of being a citizen. Each team will investigate a different ‘special condition of design and citizenship,’ according to a statement from the show’s two institutional co-commissioners, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and the University of Chicago.”
